A 3450 RPM single phase motor will run at 3599 RPM with no load, and drop down to 3450 RPM as the load increases. That's in the US where we have 60 Hz power. The oil pumps I'm familiar with all run at half engine speed, so your pump thinks it's on an engine running 7000 RPM. It certainly ought to be doing something at that speed.

Was it primed when you ran it with the motor? You know it was primed when you ran it with the drill, so did you try running it on the motor after you ran it with the drill?
